Stress and anxiety support
As one of the more widely known uses, many people will take CBD to help with their anxiety and stress levels. By including an adequate dose of CBD in your daily regime you can help your mind relax. It has been shown in studies that using CBD as a pretreatment reduced anxiety and distress during the presentations that their subject group made. These results were obtained from a double-blind study, and were verified by testing, leading us to believe that the outcome could be shared by anyone who feels that they may need to relieve their anxiety or stress.
Some people that suffer from poor sleep feel like their brain has a small hamster, continuously running around and around in its wheel. While others just cannot seem to get sleepy at the end of the day for any number of reasons. While it is true that sleep can be tough for many people for many reasons, studies show that there is a possibility that CBD could help you potentially fall asleep and stay asleep longer. It has been known for a while that some of the chemical compounds found in cannabis sativa (hemp) can help a lower your blood pressure leading a person to feel more relaxed and sleepier.
In many states, medical marijuana has been legalized, and is not out of the realm of possibility to be used to help cope with pain. The finding that Cannabis can help with pain has been explored in the past, however many people do not like the psychedelic effect of using marijuana. Hemp, being in the same family as marijuana, produces many of the same compounds to help someone with pain, but is regulated by the farm bill which requires farmers to grow hemp with the psychedelic compounds low or non-existent so that the average person will not have any of the psychedelic effects when using it.
Lower blood pressure / heart health
It has been observed that the same properties in hemp that help regulate anxiety also help to reduce blood pressure in individuals. This can help individuals to relax more often, as well as potentially bettering their heart health by helping ensuring that their heart is not consistently over worked from high blood pressure.
CBD has been found to help some people with pain, more specifically muscle related pain. This can include relief from muscle spasms that are a result of medical conditions, or from extended/overuse. This can be useful for the someone if they are looking for muscle recovery after a long weekend hike, or a heavy lifting day, and can be taken daily without serious side effects.
Along with the more traditional uses for taking CBD, people are also finding that there are some other beneficial outcomes, including potential acne treatment. What researchers are finding is that the anti-inflammatory qualities of CBD can help to reduce inflammation of the skin where acne is present. Cannabidiol has been found to also reduce some of your body’s natural secretions and reactions that can lead to acne making it a possible preventative measure to include in your daily diet.
